Trelleborg showing technology at LAMMA 2018
Trelleborg has shared plans to show a number of technological innovations aimed at helping farmers to produce more, with less at LAMMA 2018.
Bruce Lauder, senior sales and marketing manager, explains: “LAMMA is a great platform for Trelleborg to showcase our new technology and services. We have a real passion for agriculture and aim to make life as easy as possible on the farm, constantly looking at innovative ways to assist in farming efficiency and creating a sustainable future. With new technology and the increased digitalisation of agriculture, our new innovations add a further dimension to complete farm management.”
Taking centre stage will be the VIP (Variable Inflation Pressure) system. Winner of a Gold Medal at the 2017 SIMA innovation awards.
Making its debut in the UK, the ConnecTire from Trelleborg is a brand new sensor-based smart wheel which increases efficiency and productivity by reducing the risk of tyre slippage on the rim. ConnecTire constantly monitors two key variables – tyre pressure and temperature – which it relays to both tractor and farm mainframes via Bluetooth and wireless connectivity. Operators set their target tyre pressure and can then monitor how tyre pressure deviates from that target and act accordingly. Should corrective action be required, ConnecTire automatically sends an alert via its App, ensuring minimum disruption and maximum machine safety.
Amongst other things on show is the new Trelleborg TH500 is a radial tyre for the latest generation of telescopic handlers and backhoes operating on hard surfaces. The advanced TH500 radial tread-design along with its reinforced structure, delivers a longer tyre life while ensuring high traction and premium self-cleaning properties.
Elsewhere on the stand, Trelleborg will be presenting and discussing how to boost efficiency and productivity of farming operations by correct tyre set up as demonstrated at their successful Road Show events, with the opportunity to re-live the action through their Virtual Reality app.
Lauder concludes, “At LAMMA 2018, visitors will see the very best of what Trelleborg has to offer and how we can help to produce more with less, sustainably.”
Trelleborg are exhibiting on stand G29 at LAMMA 2018, 17th and 18th January in Peterborough, UK.
